    1. KSGSMU ( Katy from Texas)

    2.  I am in the 2ww... on progesterone supps which causes me major insomnia!

    3.  Not too hopeful this cycle to be honest.  Don't know why.  I see my RE after this cycle to try one last IUI before IVF discussions.  I need to lose a few more pounds to make my goal!  I know I can do it!

    4.  We finally found a house and I am in love with it!  We close in a couple of weeks!  So thankful we found our home and can be in before the Holiday's!


    QOTW:
    What is your go to dinner during the week?

    Breakfast for dinner is my go to dinner when I am out of ideas or just need something quick.  Omelets with all the veggies I need to use up!  Low Carb too!

  • 1.  Your Name or Screen Name ( not full names) and State you are from. Mindaa from Phoenix.

    2. Where are you in your cycle? CD1 

    3. How do you feel about this cycle? AF is a particularly big bummer this month because it means no announcement to family over the holidays (again) and I won’t have a baby before yet another (37th) Birthday. I’m not a big drinker, but I’m ready to put down some wine tonight. Then  refocus my energy on finalizing Christmas vacay plans (yay!).


    4. What are you thankful for this week?
    That DH and I get one more childless vacation together. J Today, as I paste on a happy face at work, I am super thankful for this board, even though I mostly lurk… I am pretty private about TTC IRL, so I've learned a lot here and you all have helped me make sense of what I’m going though, and provide hope and encouraging stories.


    QOTW: What is your go to dinner during the week?
    My quick dinners are quesadillas or pasta, using whatever veggies needs to be used up

    2.  CD41; POAS = BFN

    3.  Still not hopeful or optimistic. But that's ok cause I'm headed to the Caribbean on a cruise on Sunday...so at least I can enjoy a few mai tai's while I'm basking in the sun!

    4. I'm thankful for my husband. He puts up with my obsessive nature. And he let's me cry when things don't go my way.


    QOTW:
    Grilled chicken breast, they thaw fairly quickly and I always have brown rice and frozen steamable veggies on hand!

    3. Sad to say I'm not really feeling anything right now except the FEELING of how damn tired I am! Feeling my age with too many aches already...boo.

    4. I am thankful for my health. Too many pp around me having some tough times.

    QOTW:

    Wow this is a bad one for me. Takeout? MH does NutriSystem so I don't really cook during the week. There are at times I bring home some food from work since I have to cook for the family I work for. Guess I have it pretty easy :)

    @ksgsmu congrats on a house! That is so exciting. FX for a smooth closing.

    @mindaa where are you planning to go for vaca and @soontobeshrader I'm jealous! Have fun on your cruise. You will have to tell us all about it when you get back.

  • Hi! I'm Mrs. Babyhopes and I'm from Texas. I'm on cd3, I think. It's hard to say with my cycle bc I start spotting on 3dpo and continue heavy spotting/light flo for 12 days throughout my luteal phase. Then when AF is supposed to arrive I stop spotting. Joy! My progesterone levels say I'm on cd3. I started 100 mg of Clomid today. It's my second round of Clomid. I'm feeling discouraged and angry bc my RE still hasn't figured out why I am spotting during my luteal phase. I feel like he is giving me drugs to solve a problem without understanding what is causing the problem. I am thankful for my mom, my husband, my grandmother and my colleagues. They all make my days much brighter. I'm thankful for a day off work to grow my law practice tomorrow. I'm also thankful for the outdoor concert I'm going to with my parents tomorrow night. Wow! I should keep a journal of what I'm thankful for. I feel so much better already. :) QOTW: Variety is the spice of life and I'm no good at improvising in the kitchen, so if I don't have something planned for dinner, my go to dinner is a precooked meal from Whole Foods or delivery from my neighborhood Italian restaurant. I usu plan ahead and cook a Cookinglight dinner.

  • @BeckyP005 I'm so excited about this cruise! Work and TTC-madness have made this get-away a must. I'm keeping my FX for you to get your donor-share...any time line for that or is it yet another lesson in patience?

  • Another lesson in patience. Coordinator just called. Might not have time to synch us up before labs shutdown. I'm beyond upset.

    Not even sure if this other couple even wants this donor. I might be looking in January or after. That is if donor still available.

  • @BeckyP005 - vacation will be something sporty and most likely in Mexico... depending on what airfare prices do in the next couple weeks we'll figure out if we're flying to the Yucatan or driving to the northern Sierra Madre (from Dallas, where my IL's live).
